There were some notable faces on show on the Valley Parade playing surface before kick off this Saturday as the Bradford City apprentice group of 1988 were reunited once more.


Pictured on the pitch at the Coral Windows Stadium ahead of Saturday's npower League 2 fixture with Northampton Town, the group reunion was organised to mark 25 years since their time together at the football club.


Northampton's own manager, Aidy Boothroyd, was part of the group who joined up again at the weekend having enjoyed a spell as a Bradford apprentice in his youth.


The group also included City's very own Chief Executive/Director of Operations David Baldwin and former midfielder Lee Duxbury, who made over 270 appearances for City over two spells.


Other familiar faces involved in the reunion were, among others, goalkeeper Mark Evans and left back Jimmy Graham.
